MINISTER within the Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security, Ms. Bibi Shadick yesterday deplored the reported raping of young women in the attacks at Non Pariel, East Coast Demerara.

The minister, clearly upset about the brutal incidents, said the behaviour of the men was animalistic.

"It is like these men have become animals", she said.

A gang of about 10 armed men attacked several villagers in their homes at Non Pariel early yesterday morning.

The minister is hoping to visit the victims today along with Probation Officers from the ministry.

She also said that her ministry was keeping meticulous records of atrocities being meted out to women.
